Batelco said it is enabling free unlimited usage for all Fixed Internet users as part of supporting national initiatives to support efforts against COVID-19.
Batelco CEO Mikkel Vinter said, “We remain focussed on our vision to empower people, enable businesses and enrich society. Therefore, we have enabled unlimited usage for all our fixed Internet users, so they can continue their daily lives with minimum inconvenience and interruptions.”
“Being national is embedded in our identity and we are committed to playing our part,” he added.
Batelco said it has recognised that with students studying from home and employees working remotely and encouraged to stay home, there will be more dependency on the internet to complete transactions online, conduct virtual meetings and e-learning sessions.
All Batelco’s fixed Broadband users will automatically benefit from the unlimited usage starting from 19 March until the end of May.
